Reclaiming the Wisdom of the Sacred Feminine
All of us have both feminine and masculine energies. In modern times, the feminine has been devalued, abused, ridiculed and smothered while masculinity has become glorified. Our society has dictated that one is more valuable than the other, creating an imbalance in ourselves and in our world. The result is that none of us are able to express our full humanity. Whether we identify as male, female, or gender fluid, this devaluing of the sacred feminine inflicts pain, suffering and illness for all of us.

Aarti Tejuja is the former Director of the Social Engagement for Shambhala International where she worked with Shambhala Centers globally to help shift the community’s current insular culture to a more outward and engaged approach.
Aarti currently runs her own organization, Spiritual Activism, which offers new tools to activists who struggle with the weight of emotions they face when fighting for a more balanced world. She also works with spiritual communities and individuals with strong spiritual practices who want help stepping out and engaging the world with conscious awareness.
Aarti has served in a variety of roles with a diverse array of groups. She has managed youth programs, served on the boards of non-profits Restored Hope, who advocate for underserved women & children, as well as Arrow Collective, and participated in interfaith dialogues. In 2015, Pope Francis invited her to participate in a Buddhist Catholic dialogue in Rome. She has successfully co-led 2 youth summits and 3 large mindfulness conferences created collaboratively with non-profits and interfaith groups.
Aarti lives with her husband Matt and kitties Steve & Mochi.
